Honda Malaysia launches new 4G CR-V

Honda Malaysia Press Release for the new 4G CR-V which will be launched tomorrow.

Honda Malaysia announced that the All-New Honda CR-V will be arriving on Malaysian shores in early March this year. The completely redesigned from front to back, 4th Generation Comfortable Runabout Vehicle represents a high grade appearance with its bold and premium design, class-leading spaciousness, innovative features and functionality, improved fuel efficiency, and enhanced safety.

New CR-V to be launched in Malaysia this week

The next generation '4G' CR-V is coming to ASEAN. Finally. Delayed by the floods in Thailand, Honda has now recovered fully and is speeding up the introduction of models that have been affected. Therefore after this CR-V, expect the new 9G Accord to come very soon as well. As the 4G CR-V has already been launched in the U.S., Japan, and most other parts of the world for months already, more or less everything is known of the car. For ASEAN, the CR-V will come with only 1 powertrain option as usual, a 2.0-liter SOHC i-VTEC with a max power of 155 horsepower at 6,500 rpm, an increase of 5 horsepower as compared to its predecessor. Torque is rated at 190 Nm at 4,300 rpm. As with all newest Honda models, the new 4G CR-V is also equipped with an 'ECON' mode that adjusts the powertrain operations for optimum fuel economy. As normal, the CR-V comes with the standard 5AT transmission.The launch for Malaysia will happen in the middle of this week itself.
